Mike Crawford is a photographer and specialist photographic printer based in London. He has run Lighthouse Darkroom since 1995 and has printed for many leading photographers, working on numerous exhibitions and publications. While committed to traditional black and white printing, he has additionally embraced digital in the last decade, which in turn has expanded his creative possibilities for photographic printing.

Throughout, he has maintained his own photographic practise, working predominantly in urban landscape and portraiture. While commercially working in both analogue and digital, the majority of his personal work is photographed on film and printed in the darkroom, though digital printing now offers the potential for different methods of presentation and exhibition.

Mike has lectured at several Universities and Institutes and led many darkroom workshops for students and photographers. He is the author of four technical photographic books published by Rotovision and has written over 70 articles for various photographic magazines including the British Journal of Photography and Black and White Photography.
